Just for clarification, just because you read a mailing list through gmane
does NOT mean your posts to the mailing list have a From or other headers that
pruport to come from gmane -- gmane posts as "you" and you have to be
subscribed to the mailing list. (Of course someone could spoof their mail as
coming from the gmane subscribed user...hm, how many MLAs have "read-only"
I understand your issues with loss of control and the amount of time you need
to spend to accomodate things like gmane, however it does serve a very strong
need for a large number of people (witness the wide variety of mailing lists
on gmane) and so please don't dismiss it without due consideration.
I would like list-managers to be on gmane.
